Give us more time, and money

Trump intends to sulk as long as he can get away with it.

The president, who has spent months trying to undermine the election results with unproven allegations of fraud, pledged on Saturday to go forward with a legal strategy that he hopes will overturn state results that gave Biden the win in Tuesday’s vote.

Not gonna happen.

The president’s allies and advisers privately admitted that the former New York businessman’s chances of overturning the election results and staying in the White House were slim. While preparing for an eventual concession, they called for time to let the legal challenges run their course.

Republicans are trying to raise at least $60 million to fund legal challenges in several states, alleging foul play and seeking donations, sources told Reuters. More than half of the money raised would go to paying down the campaign’s debts, the fine print on email and text solicitations says.

Thieves and cheats to the last.

“He should make sure every vote is counted and demand transparency. That puts him on solid rhetorical grounds,” said another former White House official.

No it doesn’t. His behavior is not normal. This is not what losing candidates normally do.

Republicans outside the White House warned that Trump could tarnish his legacy if he does not eventually make a graceful exit, and erode his future political power. “It will be impossible for him to run again in 2024 if he’s seen as a sore loser,” a Congressional Republican source said.

Will it? Everybody knows he’s a sore loser; he throws tantrums every five minutes.

“President Trump is entitled to take the time he wants to absorb this. It was close and it’s not productive to demand an immediate concession,” said Ari Fleischer, who was a White House press secretary in the George W. Bush administration.

No he’s not. He’s not a toddler who broke his balloon, he’s an adult man with every advantage, unfair as well as fair, and he’s throwing a public tantrum because he lost. He’s “entitled” to jack shit.

“The best thing to keep this country together is to give the president a reasonable period of time to accept the results.”

What would that be? Ten years? Twenty? During which he refuses to leave?

The president gets a reasonable time to go back to Manhattan, and that’s it.
